I mean, it IS fall. Pretty much everyone is into pumpkins, so I am not real original:)
But someone in blogland inspired me to make this - a mod podged pumpkin. It adds a little flare to a pumpkin if I do say so myself. And who doesn't love a little flare? I sure do.
Oh it makes me happy.
First - go to Micheal's and pick up a pumpkin. I chose black because I am goth like that. I also chose artificial so my pumpkin does not rot. Rotting pumpkins do not make for good fall decor.
Then find some cute tissue paper. I chose damask because I like damask and it's black and white and kind of spooky like that. Plus it reminds me of my wedding. Happy:) Also you need modge podge and a cheapo paint brush.
Then cut the tissue paper into little banana shapes, something that will conform to the shape of the your pumpkin strip by strip.
Confession: I had to make a banana stencil because I cannot even freehand the simple shape of a banana. I am special.
Then get to mod podging! Its a little tricky dealing with the tissue paper...but mod podge covers a multitude of sins. I think that's in the Bible somewhere.
You will want to paint away one strip at a time. You can even sing the Jordin Sparks song "one step at a time" while you are doing this. But change it to "one strip at a time" because everyone knows its cooler to make up lyrics to apply to you.
After singing and mod podging...let dry.
Then bask in the glory that is your mod podge pumpkin!
